Memphis Blues Locavores To Headline Culinary Showcase At Edible Canada

Vancouver, BC – While it’s true that the ongoing mission of Memphis Blues Barbeque House is to educate Canadians on the succulent beauty of Authentic Southern BBQ, the Vancouver-based owners are always pleased for the opportunity to celebrate that which is unique to British Columbia!  Thus, Park Heffelfinger and George Siu have confirmed hosting an upcoming Market Dinner at Vancouver’s Edible Canada (1551 Johnston Street in Granville Island) on March 23rd from 7-10pm.

“We’ve both been living in Vancouver for years, have both raised our families here – so we’re excited to offer a special menu that celebrates great barbeque while utilizing locally-sourced ingredients,” enthuses George.

“Absolutely,” continues Park, “we’re using fresh vegetables, locally-sourced meats, and even a delicious vodka that was produced in Pemberton.  We’re making a killer dessert with a rye caramel sauce, with fruits that we’ll pick up fresh from Granville Island the same day!  It’s going to be a fantastic night.”

Can’t wait to find out what they’ll be serving?  Here’s a sneak peek at the one-time-only menu the two have come up with for this special night:
